Birthday Dinner Wines

CSL 25th dinner

L and I went up to Auckland for a birthday dinner at the Grove Restaurant on Wyndham St. A very nice restaurant. A very special meal with a great bunch of people!

And I got to try some new fine wines…

We started with an aperitif of  2006 Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage Epernay, very pleasant with fine bubbles and flavour. I tasted a very big, expressive 2014 Peregrine Chardonnay Central Otago with my entree . I enjoyed a 2013 Mount Edward Pinot Noir Central Otago with the lamb, and was pressed to try the 2013 Kennedy Point Syrah Waiheke. A wow wine to finish up, so savoury and aromatic. Yum. Recommended. There was a sticky with the dessert, but I passed on that. Too replete!
